Default CASE Relearn help please

I recently had to replace the PCM in my 2006 TBSS. I had no problems installing the new programmed PCM, or with the Security Relearn. I took it to the dealer for the CASE Relearn and they charged me $135.00. Ouch! I now have a 2008 GMC Sierra that also needs a new PCM. A friend has offered to sell me his Dashhawk, but does not know if it will work on the 2008 and later PCMs. He has used it only on his 2006 and 2007 vehicles. Does anybody know if this is compatible?

I've looked at the Dash Boss and really like it, except it requires an Apple device for use as the monitor. I don't have any Apple products now, and the cost of one is not in my budget, at least not for use as a monitor. Are there any other reasonable cost options I might not yet be aware of?

Thanks.

If the PCM in the Sierra is the same as the Tbss then it will work.

The PCMs are not the same, however they are both CANbus systems. Supposedly, it'll work on any GM Canbus system. I've purchased it. Now it's time to find out!

The DashHawk arrived today. I'm happy to report that it worked fine on my 2008 Sierra 5.3L gas. The CASE Relearn took all of about 4 minutes. And the dealership gets $135 for performing that. Wow!

$135 is cheap. I have been checking where I am for a case relearn and best I could do is $300. They had to "diagnose" the problem before performing any work.

Either they were clueless of just trying to screw me over. So I rented a Diablo from PCM of NC for $25. Everything should be here on Monday.
